Description
Jerusha Abbott is the oldest orphan in the John Grier Home. Every day she helps scrub and dress the younger children-all 97 of them. Soon she will graduate from high school and be on her own. Where will she go, and how will she support herself? When an anonymous wealthy donor decides to send her to college, Jerusha can hardly believe her good fortune. All she must do in return is send him a letter once a month. With all the excitement of college life-classes, parties, new friends, and a special gentleman-Jerusha can hardly stop writing! Jean Webster's entertaining tale of a high-spirited orphan girl coming-of-age in the early 1900s has been made into a play, several movies, and a musical comedy. Kate Forbes' fresh portrayal of Jerusha will win the hearts of a new generation of readers.

      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This 1912 book has been made into a play and several movies. However, Forbes's sparkling delivery gives the charming story a whole new perspective. Jerusha is an orphan girl who expects to be turned out into the world when she leaves the John Grier Home. Since only poor boys qualify for college assistance, Jerusha is astonished when an anonymous man, Daddy-Long-Legs, grants her funding for school. All she must do in return is write letters to him reporting her progress. Her feisty letters provide an excellent view of a girl's life in the early twentieth century. It is a credit to Forbes's skill that she keeps the letters so interesting. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
